With Valentine’s Day approaching, let’s take some time to think about all the love that surrounds teaching. Teachers, openly give a part of their heart and soul into molding young students to being the best they can be.
Teaching is wonderful, however, it is such a giving profession that many teachers can get so wrapped up into constantly prioritising their students over themselves, some may even neglect their own well-being. Furthermore, many teachers feel guilty about taking care of themselves because they see is as a barrier to giving their all to their students. It can’t be stressed enough though that self-care isn’t at all about what the title may seem to imply – being selfish. On the contrary, it’s imperative.
Self-care is all about taking care of your mental and physical health and making sure that you have everything you need to thrive as a teacher. Without taking care of yourself, you won’t have the energy to help your students.
Self-care can keep you at the top of your game and ready to handle any challenges that come up during your teaching career, your students will thank you for it.
Are you feeling up to the self-care challenge?
Why don’t you take these steps this week to make sure you give yourself some well deserved self-care, this week.
Of all the people you will know in a lifetime,
You are the only one you will never leave or lose.
To the question of your life,
You are the only answer.
To the problems of your life,
You are the only solution.
